SOME LYRICS WOULD DISGRACE THE BACK OF A DENNY'S NAPKIN

We're reluctant to mention Ashlee Simpson here, as her name is a huge magnet for comment spam - is she really such a top-drawer pull? Or do the spammers just assume that if you're interested in Ashlee Simpson, you'd probably need viagra? Anyway, apparently there's to be another album from Simpson, and AshleeFan.com has what it claims is the lyrics from this opus.

If it wasn't called AshleeFan, we'd assume it was a cruel pisstake. Here's a couple of samples:

What you been doing
What you been doing
Whoa, whoa, haven't seen you around
How you been feelin, how you been feelin Whoa, whoa, don't you bring me down

[...]

It seems like yesterday that my world fell from the sky
It seems like yesterday I didn't know how hard I could cry

[...]

But all my girls we're in a circle and nobody's gonna break through
L, O, L, O, L O LO V E
L, O, L, O L, O
L, O L, L O L, O L O V E
L, O L O L O
Did you hear me say
L, O, L, O L O L O V E
L, O, L O L, O
L, O L O L O L O V E
L, O L O L O L O


Teletubbies said something similar once, I believe. We can't help but note that the popular internet shorthand LOL has been hidden in that one, as a hostage to fortune.

Nothing's gonna hold me back
It's Friday night
And I feel all right
Nobody's gonna bring me down
It's my life
And I'm doing fine
Don't you know I wanna play
So take me on a holiday


Well, it does all rhyme, at least.

Parents: we wouldn't normally advise this, but... if you do find your kids are downloading this album off the web - report your children to the RIAA. It's the kindest thing to do.

Didn't Razorlight already do that one?
